CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1886. 

MERCURY IS THE GOVERNING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General.— Is more dry and cold 
than warm, and seldom fruitful. 

Si'kim; — The end of March will be warm, April, 
until the 25th, dry, afterwards cold. May will have 
someoold days in the commencement, so that the 
fruit will be in danger. 

Simmer— Will have a good deal of rain, by which 
the earth will, however, not be properly refreshed. 
The hay and grain can be brought in pretty well, 
though it will be best not to delay with it. 

Autumn. — In the commencement there will be a 
great deal of rain, and there will be early frost; but 
when the half of October is past, there will be dry 
weather, until the commencement of advent. 

Winter.— After a pleasant autumn, winter will fall 
in suddenly in the commencement of December; it 
will be cold and snow until February, which will ap- 
pear rather mild ; but from the middle on to the 4th 
of March it will be cold; and from thence on to the 
termination, storms and tempests will take place. 

Cultivation of Spring Grain.— Will succeed pretty 
well. It is a favorite year for barley. Oats, peas, 
and other leguminous plants must be sown when the 
ground is neither too dry nor too wet and damp. 
Hemp and flax will be good, but the hemp will re- 
main short. 

Cultivation of Winter Grain. — Is various. If 
the summer of the preceding year was very warm, 



wheat and rye will in the present year yield largely 
in straw, but little in the grain ; but if the preceding 
year was humid, they will yield well in the grain. 
Rye and wheat will be endangered in the blossoming. 
August Seeding. — The early and the late will be 
the best ; the middle one will be consumed by the 
flies. The early sown grain can be pastured by the 
sheep in the spring, but the late sown must not. 

Fruit. — In some places it will grow abundantly, 
in some places tolerably, and in others there will be 
none at all. 

Hops. — Will not be abundant nor strong. 

Grape Culture seldom succeeds ; probably in five 
or six years once; is always rough, and if ever it 
promises fairly in the spring, it seldom produces any- 
thing good ; for two unproductive years will follow 
yet, viz., that of the Moon and Saturn. 

Tempests and Thundergusts. — The east wind will 
be the most prevalent, sometimes the west, but sel- 
dom the north wind ; during the summer there will 
be but few thundergusts. 

Fishes. — There will be but few fish in the stream 
during the summer ; in autumn they will increasf 

Diseases. — Can be cured only slowly in this y 
and they prevail mostly in the spring and latter 
of autumn. Epidemic diseases generally pr< 
among the cattle this year.

BRETHREN'S FAMILY ALMANAC. 



[1886. 



INTRODUCTION. 



One of the most common things in every 
household is the family almanac, and we suppose 
it is more frequently consulted than any other 
kind of literature. The whole household be- 
comes familiar with the almanac. Every page 
is carefully read and re-read, so that it is impor- 
tant that its character be such as will commend 
it to every Christian family. Taking into con- 
sideration this fact, we have been careful to fill 
its pages with such reading as will be interesting 
and profitable to all who may read it. 

For a number of years we have been issuing 
an almanac for the special benefit of our patrons 
and such others as desire a good family almanac. 
We are pleased to believe that so far our work 
has given good satisfaction, as the number want- 
ed is larger each year. This one, for the year 
1886, we hope will be, if not better, quite as 
good as its predecessors, and will demand an 
: j q dally good patronage. 

In our introductory we need not tell you that 
another year has run its course, and that we all 
are one year further on in the journey of life. 
This we all know ; but how slow we are to real- 
\zi that time is passing, and that our opportuni- 
ties for doing good and preparing for the better 
life are daily growing less. 

It is a solemn thing to contemplate, tnat in 
some of the thousands of homes in which this 
almanac will find a place, death will come and 
take his quota. Of course none of us knows 
who it will be, but we fondly entertain the hope 
that the called ones may be such as are prepared 
for the change, so that it can be said of them, 
they are not dead — they have only gone before. 
Dear reader, among the called your name may 
be enrolled. Let us all feel that we may be 
among the number, and so live that whether the 
summons come or not, we may be ready. 

May the year 1886 be to all of us a year of 
Christian enjoyment and spiritual prosperity. 
May our souls prosper as the good Lord prospers 
us, and may all the golden opportunities be im- 
proved in laying up treasures in heaven. 



ADVICE TO YOUNG MEN. 



Never use a lady's name in an improper place, 
or at an improper time, or in mixed company. 
Never make assertions about her that you think 
are untrue, allusions that you feel she herself 
would blush to hear. When you meet with' men 
who do not scruple to make use of a woman's 



name in a reckless and unprincipled manner, 
shun them, for they are the very worst members 
of the community — men lost to every sense of 
honor, every feeling of humanity. Many a 
good and worthy woman's character has been 
forever ruined and her heart broken by a lie, 
concocted by some villain, and repeated where 
it should not have been, and in the presence of 
those whose judgment could not deter them 
from circulating the foul report. A slander is 
soon propagated, and the smallest thing deroga- 
tory to a woman's character will fly on the 
wings of the wind, and magnify as it circulates, 
until its monstrous weight crushes the poor un- 
conscious victim. Respect the women, for your 
mother and sisters are women, and as you would 
have their fair name untarnished, and their life 
unembittered by the slanderer's biting tongue, 
heed the ill that your own words may bring upon 
the mother, the sister, or the wife of some fel- 
low-man. 



MILK DIET. 



Milk should enter largely into the diet of 
children. It contains caseine, or flesh-forming 
material, cream and sugar, which are heat pro- 
ducers; mineral salts, for the bony structure; 
and water as a solvent for all the other materials 
necessary in nutrition. It should be used with 
discretion, however; not drunk immoderately, 
but taken slowly as food after the pattern given 
by nature. Milk as taken is a fluid, but as soon 
as it meets the acid of the gastric juice, it is 
changed to a soft, curdy, cheese -like substance, 
and then must be digested, and the stomach is 
overtasked if too much be taken at once. A 
large glass of milk swallowed suddenly will form 
in the stomach a lump of dense, cheesy curd, 
which may even prove fatal to a weak stomach. 
Under the action of the stomach this cheeky 
mass will turn over and over like a heavy weight, 
and, as the gastric juice can only attack its sur- 
face, it digests very slowly. But this same milk, 
taken slowly, or with dry toast, light rolls, or 
soft dry porridge, forms a porous lump through 
which the gastrid juice can easily pass, and 
which breaks up every time the stomach turns it 
over. Milk should be slightly salted, and eaten 
with breadstuff's or sipped by the spoonful. 
Cow's milk produces less heat than human milk; 
a child would grow thin upon it unless a little 
sugar were added. Wheat flour has such an ex- 
cess of heat- producing material as would fatten 
a child unduly, and should have cow's milk ad- 
ded to it to reduce its fattening power.

THE TWO CHRISTOPHER SAURS (FA- 
THER AND SON), FIRST PRINT- 
ERS OF THE BIBLE IN 
AMERICA. 



Posterity seldom denies the tribute of honora- 
ble remembrance to those who have been pio- 
neers in a good cause and labored for the welfare 
of mankind. In this respect full justice has not 
been done to the two Saurs. Only scant bio- 
graphical sketches have been published, and the 
distinction between the two, since they both bore 
the same name, has not always been as marked 
as necessary to a thorough understanding of 
their history. 

EARLY DAYS OF CHRISTOPHER SAUR, SEN. 

The subject of this part of our sketch was 
born in 1693, at Laasphe, a small town in West- 
phalia, in a neighborhood noted at that time for 
an extensive religious movement. Many had 
become dissatisfied with the existing religious 
bodies, and longed for a purer life, with more of 
the spirit, and less of the formality of a profes- 
sor. Although at that time such departures were 
not tolerated by the different governments, yet 
they found a safe retreat in the above-mentioned 
vicinity, where the authorities themselves were 
in favor of the movement. In this peculiar re- 
ligious atmosphere, Christopher Saur reached 
the years of manhood. Schwarzenau, where the 
Brethren originated in 1708, was but a short dis- 
tance from the place where Saur had settled 
down and worked at tailoring, in connection 
with other trades. He became fully identified 
with the grand reformatory movement of the 
Brethren, and when, a few years after, persecu- 
tions arose, he decided to emigrate, with others, 
to the land of promise, the country of William 
Penn. 



In the fall of 1724 he reached Germantown. 
accompanied by his wife and three-year-old boy, 
Christopher. When he arrived, there were many 
still living who had found that place an unbro- 
ken wilderness and could tell of the hardships of 
the early days. Here Saur staid two years, when 
he went to Millback, Lancaster county, to devote 
himself to agricultural pursuits. He purchased 
a tract of land in Leacock township, but did not 
remain long, since Conrad Beissel. the Seventh 
Day enthusiast, prevailed upon Saur's wife to 
leave husband and child and join the body after- 
wards known as the Ephrata Seventh Day Breth- 
ren. She remained with them until 1744, when 
she returned to her husband, upon remonstrances 
made by her son. 

After this domestic trouble, Christopher Saur 
returned in 1731 to Germantown, where he car- 
ried on business of various kinds, until, seven 
years later, he established 

THE PRINTING OFFICE. 

Among the first publications of Christopher 
Saur was his almanac, which was first published 
in 1738 and continued without interruption until 
1777. In these almanacs he, as well as his son, 
aimed to instruct rather than entertain, and here 
it is where we find his opinion of slavery. He 
says: "America has a special abomination. 
Though the earth yields largely, that every one 
might have bread in plenty, yet they steal many 
black slaves, buy and sell them like cattle, 
though they are men like ourselves, excepting 
the color." His first work, a collection of 
hymns, was about the largest that had thus far 
appeared in this country. 

August 20, 1759, appeared in Saur's publish- 
ing house the first German paper ever printed in 
America. It contained four pages, in size 9x13; 
the title of the publication (in English) being: 
"The High-German, Pennsylvanian Historian, 
or a collection of important events in nature 
and church." . In his editorial he mentions that 
he did not propose to publish a newspaper in the 
common acceptation of the term, but. rather a 
collection of facts that might tend to better hu- 
manity. 

This small periodical first appeared only quar- 
terly, but soon gained so many friends that it 
could be published monthly. The subscription 
price then was three shillings (forty cents) per 
year. In 1 745 the name was changed from 
"Historian" to "Reports," since, as Saur ex- 
presses it, "many things were reported that were 
not actual facts, but simply suppositions or even 
falsehoods." With the year 1749 the "Reports "

were published semi-monthly, and in 1775 by 
his son weekly. The old price of three shillings 
was still retained, although the readers received 
fifty-two instead of twelve numbers. His reason 
for retaining the old price was, that the extra ex- 
pense was covered by increased receipts from ad- 
vertisements, and he did not propose to be paid 
twice for the same work. The paper had at- 
tained a circulation of 4000 copies and over, — 
certainly very good for that time, and was pub- 
lished until 1777, when the Revolutionary War 
stopped its publication. 

PRINTING OF THE BIBLE, ETC. 

Soon after the establishing of the office, Chris- 
topher Saur contemplated printing a complete 
and correct German Bible. This was a great 
undertaking at that time, as the first English Bi- 
ble, which appeared forty years later, was not 
published until special provisions were made by 
the State. Saur issued a prospectus of the Bible, 
wherein he states, among other things, that the 
price would likely be (unbound) fourteen shil- 
lings per copy, depending somewhat on the size 
of edition, etc. After the Bible was published, 
it appeared that it was even cheaper, costing only 
twelve shillings unbound, and eighteen shillings 
bound in strong leather binding. This first edi- 
tion of the Bible was published in 1743, and at- 
tracted great attention even in Germany. Two 
other editions were published by Christopher 
'Saur (the younger), in 1763 and 1776. 

The other publications of Saur were mostly 
religious works in the German langurge, num- 
bering with those of the younger Saur, about 

150-. 

With the different churches of his day Saur 
frequently got into conflict, not because he de- 
sired to be at variance, but because he could see 
the defects among them with an unprejudiced 
«ye. He upheld peace principles, and for that 



cause alone, incurred the enmity of those advo- 
cating that a Christian might bear arms, and 
still be a follower of the lowly Nazarene. The 
"hireling ministry," as he called it, had ideas 
entirely different from his own, and though Saur 
never attacked their personal character, yet he 
could not avoid offending them by his persistent 
teaching of the truth. It is to be regretted that 
a lack of space forbids giving a more definite ac- 
count of the relations of Saur to the political 
events of the day. Suffice it to say that at all 
times he preserved his non-resistant principles, 
claiming even the treatment of the Indian as un- 
worthy a Christian people, and the wars with 
them as not only unnecessary but cruel. 

As a philanthropist Saur deserves special men- 
tion. The passenger transport of those days 
was carried on in such corruption, that some- 
times one-half of the passengers died in coming 
over, owing to insufficient food and the crowded 
condition on board, where they were huddled 
together like so many cattle. On one occasion 
only sixty out of four hundred reached their des- 
tination. These matters called for earnest ac- 
tion, and through the influence of Saur, the 
friends of humanity finally prevailed upon the 
Legislature to pass stringent laws, regulating the 
passenger-transport, which helped matters great- 

Christopher Saur took an active part at a meet- 
ing Dec. 6, 1759, for the purpose of establishing 
an academy for the education of the rising gen- 
eration. Our record says that he took the lead, 
not in merely talking, but contributing liberally, 
so that the meeting was successful in raising the 
needed amount, Saur being one of six of a com- 
mittee, and could commence building already 
the following January. In the welfare of the 
school Saur took much interest, and inasmuch as 
his zeal extended even unto his substance, we 
may learn that in this, our day, such help is not 
only acceptable, but due the cause from all the 
lovers of education and enlightenment. 

Sept. 25, 1758, Christopher Saur departed 
this life, being in his sixty-fourth year, of which 
thirty-four years had been spent in this country. 

THE YOUNGER CHRISTOPHER SAUR. 

As we have seen before, Christopher Saur, 
Jun., came with his father to the land of free- 
dom at the age of three years. His mother hav- 
ing left the family circle for a cell in the Sisters' 
building at Ephrata, the young Christopher was 
left to the care of his father. In many respects 
were the characteristics of the older Saur trans- 
mitted to his son.

Christopher Saur, Jun., joined the church of 
the Brethren when in his sixteenth year, and, ac- 
cording to the testimony of evert his opponents, 
remained faithful to his baptismal vows until 
death. He was chosen to the ministry several 
years after his baptism, and the confidence of 
the Brethren was very great in- him, on account 
of the unwavering fidelity to the non-resistant 
principles of the Gospel. He was a member of 
the first Brethren's congregation in America, — 
the one which organized with Peter Becker as 
elder, Dec. 25, 1723, at Beggartown, the upper 
part of Germantown, at the house of John Petti- 
kofer. Saur was a faithful assistant in the minis- 
try to the elder, Alexander Mack. 

April 21, 1 75 1, Christopher Saur, Jun., united 
in matrimony with Catharine Sharpneck, and. 
nine children blessed their union. He took 
charge of his father's business with zeal and an 
enterprising spirit, and, as a natural consequence, 
prospered. The second edition of his Bible 
having a good profit, he felt himself under ob- 
ligation to do something in return. According- 
ly he published a religious paper for several 
years, which he distributed free of charge. 

As his father did before him, so also did the 
younger Saur carry on different branches of bus- 
iness, together with his publishing interests. He 
made his own type ; his type-foundry being the 
first on this continent. His paper-mill made a 
superior quality of paper for that time, while his 
printing ink and presses were made under his 
special supervision. Of his medical preparations 
it is said that they could always be depended 
upon for purity and general excellence. 

The younger Saur was not so fortunate as his 
father in escaping a serious conflict with the gov- 
ernment. The stirring times of the Revolution- 
ary War had come and when, in 1777, Saur had 
gone to Philadelphia for a short visit with his 



sons, he was on his return in 1778 arrested as 
being in sympathy with the English. He was, 
however, liberated, and ordered to go to Me- 
tutchen. Before, however, he was even permit- 
ted to go there, he was subjected to indignities 
that none could have suffered patiently unless 
filled with the spirit of Christ. On his way to 
the "Orderly Office," the soldiers even took 
his clothing, leaving him neither hat nor shoes. 
When old brother Peter Keyser's father met him 
in such a sad plight, he asked the soldiers if they 
would let Saur keep hat and shoes if he would 
give him such. They agreed, and thereupon 
Keyser took off his own shoes and hat and gave 
them to Saur. While Saur was at Metutchen, 
there was a proclamation issued giving the names 
of all such as were regarded as traitors to the 
revolutionary cause, and ordering all such to ap- 
pear before the Supreme Court at Lancaster, to 
clear themselves of the charge. Saur's name 
was among the rest, but as he never got a copy 
of the proclamation at Metutchen, he could not 
obey its mandates at the appointed time, and 
so, on returning to Germantown, he found that 
his property was to be confiscated by the State. 
He bore it all willingly and without a murmur. 
He might have had recourse to the law for being 
condemned without a trial, and regained his 
property, but this his principles did not permit. 
The total value of his property could not have 
been short of $100,000, which was all taken 
away. To give up all this required principle 
and strength of character equalled by few. 

The greatest sorrow, however, to Saur was the 
stigma that attached to his name, — that he had 
been declared a traitor. The loss of his proper- 
ty he counted as nothing, but he did not like to 
be condemned of a crime which he had never 
committed. To the Yearly Meeting of the 
Brethren he addressed himself once as follows : 
" If a man is openly declared a traitor without a 
cause, without a hearing or trial, when he was 
not absent and might have been heard, is it just 
to let him lie forever under that reproach?" 

The rest of his life he spent at the hospitable 
home of his friend Stamm, where he worked at 
his trade as opportunity might offer. He re- 
mained active in the ministry, and even two 
weeks before his death went a distance of twelve 
miles on foot to Skippack, returning in the same 
apostolic manner. Aug. 26, 1784, he died at 
the age of sixty-three years. 

Much more might be written and told of these 
two brethren, honorable to us for their true 
worth and strength of character, but our space 
is limited and we must close. It is but just to

HISTORICAL FACTS RELATING TO THE 
BIBLE. 



The thirty-nine books of the Old Testament, 
it is thought, were written in Hebrew. The 
twenty-seven books of the New Testament, it is 
thought, were written in Greek. The Old Tes- 
tament was translated into Greek, about three 
hundred years before Christ. 

About the year 1455 tne Bible was first printed 
in Latin at Mentz, Germany. The first com- 
plete English Bible was proposed by John Rey- 
nolds, of Oxford. Reynolds' proposition was 
favored by King James I, who appointed fifty- 
four learned and pious men, to make the transla- 
tions ; the work occupied nearly four years. 

The Bible was first printed in America in the 
language of the native Indian, by Rev. John 
Elliott— the New Testament in 1661, the Old 
Testament in 1663 — published at Cambridge, 
Mass. The second Bible printed in America, 
was in the German language, published at Ger- 
mantown, near Philadelphia, by Christopher 
Saur, in 1752. 

The first English American Bible was printed 
by Kneelond and Green, at Boston, in 1752. It 
is remarkable how fruitless have been the repeat- 
ed efforts to destroy the Bible. Despite of its 
numerous foes it has been safely handed down 
through all former tongues, languages, and gen- 
erations, thus clearly fulfilling Christ's prophetic 
declaration, that "Heaven and earth shall pass 
away, but my words shall not pass away. ' ' 

I. J. ROSENBERGER. 



THE MAZARIN BIBLE. 



The oldest printed book in the world is the 
Mazarin Bible. It is so called because a copy 
of it was found in the library of that celebrated 
French statesman, Mazarin, in Paris, about the 
middle of the last century. It was beautifully 
printed in Latin, and when offered for sale, not 
a human being, except the artists, could tell how 
the work had been done. The printing was fin- 
ished as early as 1455, and the binding and illu- 
minating were completed at Mentz in 1456. 

It was in two volumes, and there were about 
twenty copies, eighteen of which are still to be 
found, ten being in private libraries in England. 
Some of these are printed on vellum, a very fine 
kind of parchment, some on paper of choice 
quality, with black and tolerably handsome let- 
ters. 

Of this book, Hallam, the historian, thus, 
writes : 

"In imagination we may see this venerable 
and splendid volume leading up the crowded 
myriads of its followers, and imploring, as it 
were, a blessing on the new art by dedicating 
its first-fruits to the service of heaven.'' 

A copy of this Bible was sold a few years ago 
for twenty-five hundred dollars. 



A TREE THAT GIVES LIGHT AT NIGHT. 



A most remarkable tree or shrub grows in a 
small gulch near some springs about twelve miles 
north of Tuscarora, Nevada. It is about six or 
seven feet in height, with a trunk, which at its 
base, is three times the size of a man's wrist. 

Its leaves, at a certain season of the year, are 
so luminous that it can be plainly distinguished 
in the darkest night for the distance of more 
than a mile ; while in its immediate vicinity it 
emits sufficient light to enable a person to read 
the finest print. It^ foliage is extremely plenti- 
ful, and resembles somewhat in size, shape, and 
color, the aromatic bog-tree in California. 

The luminous property is evidently parasitic, 
and consists of a sort of a gummy substance, 
which, upon being transferred by rubbing to a 
person's hand, imparts to it the same apparently 
phosphorescent light ; while that on the leaf en- 
tirely disappears. 

The Indians regarded it with superstition, and 
will not approach it even in day-time, if they 
can possibly avoid it. They have a name for it, 
which literally interpreted, signifies "witch tree." 
An old Shoshone said there were only two others 
in the entire country. — Selected by I. J. R.

ONE STEP AT A TIME. 



George Manning had almost decided to be- 
come a Christian. One doubt held him back. 
"How can I know," he said to himself, "that 
even if I do begin a religious life, I shall con- 
tinue faithful, and finally reach heaven?" He 
wanted to see the whole way there before taking 
the first step. While in ths state of indecision 
and unhappiness, he one evening sought the 
house of his favorite Professor — for he was a 
college student at the time — and they talked for 
several hours upon the all-absorbing topic. But 
the conversation ended without dispelling his 
fears or bringing him any nearer the point of 
decision. 

When he was about to go home, the Professor 
accompanied him to the door, and observing 
how dark the night was, prepared a lantern, and 
handing it to his friend, said, "George, this lit- 
tle light will not show you the whole way to 
your room, but only one step at a time ; but 
take that step, and you will reach your home in 
safety." It proved the word in season. As 
George walked securely along the path, bright- 
ened by the little lantern, the truth flashed 
through his mind, dispelling the last shadow of 
doubt. "Why can I not trust my Heavenly 
Father," he said to himself, "even if I can't 
see my way clear to the end, if He gives me 
light to take one step? I will trust Him; I do 
trust Him. ' ' He could hardly wait till he reached 
his room to fall on his knees and thank God for 
the peace and joy that filled his soul. Early the 
next morning the professor was summoned to 
the door. There he found George Manning. 
With beaming face he looked up to his teacher, 
and as he handed him the lantern, said signifi- 
cantly : " Doctor, your little lamp lighted me 
all the way home last night." 



PUNCTUALITY. 



One of the many forms of selfishness, is a 
want of punctuality, the root of all evil. If 
your father is a man who counts much upon the 
pleasure of having all his family with him at his 
meals, you may, by your dilatoriness, quite spoil 
them for him, any proof of a child's indiffer- 
ence being a poor appetizer. Nor is it merely 
with the enjoyment of his meal, that you may 
interfere, but with his digestion ; since the most 
material functions of our material bodies are 
greatly assisted, or greatly hindered, by moral 
agencies. 

The unpunctual man is apt to think that the 
greatest evil he occasions, by his special infirm- 
ity, is temporary inconvenience or disappoint- 
ment. But this is not so. If one of his delays 
should disturb only the arrangements for one 
day of a single person, he may congratulate 
himself. Order is heaven's first law, and the 
second, regular routine, is like unto it. If the 
earth and the moon were to loiter in their 
course, and accomplish their revolutions at un- 
certain times, and in uncertain periods, every- 
thing here would be out of joint. And so is 
everything out of joint that is in the sphere of 
duty and occupation of the prognosticator. 

If the duty that belongs to one hour be de- 
ferred to another, they seem subjected to a pro- 
cess that merges one in another, until all are re- 
duced to a single vanishing point, and leave no 
record behind them. What bitter disappoint- 
ment, and what serious annoyance and loss, may 
come from a letter, a little too late for the mail, 
a bill paid after the promised time, an appoint- 
ment not kept, a commission deferred ! Note 
for yourselves, and think on these things. 

Punctuality is essential to another virtue — re- 
liableness. Do all that you promise to do, and 
all that you are rightfully required and expected 
to do, as certainly, so far as it depends upon 
yourself, as the sun rises and sets, so that the 
hearts of all with whom you are in any way 
connected may "safely trust" in you. Then 
you will, become "pillars of support " in the 
family and in society, instead of broken reeds. 

The comfort and satisfaction of dealing with 
the truly reliable is immense, as, of course, also 
is the misery of all intercourse with the unrelia- 
ble. Go when you say you will go ; come when 
you say you will come ; do this and that when 
you say you will do it, even if it be a little 
thing, without being deterred by any but insup- 
erable obstacles.

COMFORT ONE ANOTHER. 



In how many ways this apostolic injunction 
may be obeyed. The promises of God are var- 
ied as are human wants and sorrows, and the 
heart of love can so employ them as to bring a 
message of comfort to all who are in need. Je- 
sus, in His intercourse with His intimate friends 
and disciples, was always ready to comfort them. 
Over the waves of the tempestuous sea His voice 
is heard, saying: "It is I, be not afraid." The 
sisters of Bethany looked not in vain for the 
coming of that friend whose presence brought 
comfort, that made the desolated home full of 
gladness and joy. When the hour of His cruci- 
fixion drew near, and He knew the trial that 
would come in His separation from the disciples, 
He prepares their hearts by words of comfort 
that can never cease to help those who love Him. 

One of the highest privileges in connection 
with the Christian life, is that of comforting oth- 
ers. How few there are but that have some bur- 
den or trouble. All around us are those who 
look into open graves. Death has robbed them 
of their best heart treasures. Everywhere else 
the outlook is dark and cheerless, but from the 
promises of God flow streams of healing com- 
fort. It is for you to recall these words to the 
mind of the stricken one, and open the only 
way of relief. When earthly troubles and anxie- 
ties come, nothing can bring such help as that 
which is derived from the sustaining assurances 
of the watchful care of a Heavenly Father, who 
overrules all the changing circumstances of life 
for good. It may be that it is appointed to you 
to be the messenger of this comfort. As breth- 
ren, we ought to expect to comfort others, and 
receive comfort in the day of our-need. To-day 
we may cheer by a word drawn from the Divine 
storehouse of knowledge and experience, those 
who are cast down under the burden of fear and 



doubt. To-morrow it may be our privilege to 
send a ray of hope into the heart of a father or 
mother, mourning over a wayward child, as one 
dead. The promise we drop in the ear of a 
young disciple may bring a comfort that shall 
awaken the zeal that is ready to slacken. There 
are verses in the New Testament that have been 
open windows into heaven to many a mourning 
heart. Lead them gently where they may catch 
this outlook. Comfort one another. Let us 
stop amid the cares that press us, and the duties 
that are urgent in their demands, and ask, "Am 
I a messenger of comfort to others?" 



BEAUTIFYING FARMS. 



Great progress, says an eastern exchange, has 
been made within the last twenty-five years, 
among the farmers of the country, not only in 
making their farms more productive, but in mak- 
ing them more attractive. This, in a large 
measure, is the result of prosperous farming. 
Those who had debts to pay, did not feel able 
to expend much in ornamenting their places; 
but since they have freed themselves from this 
burden, they have been more disposed to attend 
to the appearance of things. 

There has also been an advance in taste. 
There are not so many now who decry all atten- 
tion to the ornamental as a waste of time and 
money. This race of niggardly and boorish 
men is fast dying out. Increasing intelligence, 
the cultivation of agricultural reading, the infu- 
sion of a larger element of educated and culti- 
vated men into the profession, have had a pow- 
erful influence in securing more attention to the 
aesthetics of farming instead of having every- 
thing expended for mere pecuniary returns. 
And this is a great advance. It ennobles the 
pursuit of the farmer. Man is a creature of taste, 
and not a mere grub; and he who neglects to 
cultivate and to gratify this element in his nat- 
ure, degrades himself. Any one may form a 
pretty correct estimate of the intellectual, if not 
the moral, state of his neighbors, by simply 
looking over their farms. The one who allows 
his buildings and lands to lie in a slovenly state, 
when he has the means of improving them, may 
be a money-loving, but he will also be a slovenly 
man with no elevating instincts. 

It is a great mistake to suppose that money 
spent in reasonably improving the appearance of 
a place is thrown away. It may be doubted 
whether there is any more direct method to in- 
crease its pecuniary value, which will depend

much on its outward appearance. Tasteful and 
well painted buildings, well arranged yards, and 
gardens with neat fences, shade trees properly 
disposed, good farm fences, and cleanly kept 
fields, will set off a farm to great advantage, 
and make an amazing difference when it comes 
to be sold. And even if it be not sold, these 
things will add amazingly to the enjoyment of 
it by its possessor, if he be not blind to every- 
thing but the dollar. 

Every man, too, owes it to the community in 
which he is living to contribute to its general 
reputation, and to the public enjoyment, by 
making all his surroundings as attractive as pos- 
sible. There is such a thing as paying too much 
attention to outside and to show; but there is 
reason in all things, and a measure of time and 
attention and expense should be devoted by 
every one to making his farm and his home more 
attractive every year that he lives. 



HOW OLD IS THE ENGLISH BIBLE? 



On the 17th of May, 1881, was issued, in 
London, the Revised New Testament, for which 
one London publisher had advance orders for 
more than a million copies, and of which their 
agent in New York, where it was issued May 20, 
sold 365,000 copies before the end of the year. 
It was immediately reprinted in America, in 
some fifty editions, one of which had a circula- 
tion of 100,000 copies, and another a circulation 
of 65,000 copies, before January, 1882. Proba- 
bly, within one year from the date of its issue, 
three million copies were bought in Great Britain 
and America. 

On comparing this book with King James' 
translation, we find numerous changes, most of 
which are so unimportant that ordinary people 
wonder why they were made. In many instan- 
ces, one word has been changed for another of 



exactly the same meaning. In some cases a del- 
icate shade of difference can be detected ; in 
other instances, the grammatical construction 
varies slightly ; occasionally a sentence or word 
is omitted ; but the ordinary reader, taking the 
book and reading it through, would detect few 
essential differences. No one, so far as we have 
been informed, has changed one article of his 
faith or one iota of his practice, and no sect has 
lost or gained a member, in consequence of the 
changes which have been made. The same facts 
are stated, and the same doctrines taught in both 
books. We have, therefore, substantially the 
same book that has been in circulation through- 
out the English-speaking world since 161 1; the 
same book of which, during the present century : 
more than two hundred translations have been 
made, — thus placing it within the reach of the 
majority of the inhabitants of the globe. 

We may now go back further, and we find 
that this New Testament is, in all essential par- 
ticulars, the same as that published by Tyndale 
in 1526, and substantially the same as the trans- 
lation made by Wyckliffe from the Latin in 1380. 
The difference between any of these copies does 
not affect the general integrity of the book; and 
whatever variations there may be in them are 
mainly due to occasional misapprehensions of 
the meaning of certain passages by translators, 
or to changes in the meaning of English words, 
which render some of the old expressions obse- 
lete and unintelligible to the present generation 
of English readers. Our language has changed, 
but the book is substantially the same. 

We may then safely say that the English New 
Testament has existed, with no essential varia- 
tions, for the last five hundred years, manu- 
script copies of Wyckliffe's Testament of that 
age being still in existence ; Wyckliffe's English 
New Testament not having been printed till it 
was more than four hundred years old. 

Of course there have been numerous typo- 
graphical errors in the different printed editions 
of the New Testament. We sometimes find a 
letter turned upside down, or a word misspelled. 
One edition of the Bible is called the " Vinegar 
Bible," because in one instance the word " vine- 
gar" is printed where it should be "vineyard." 
Such variations as these are easily corrected, and 
mislead no one. Other more important, and in 
some cases intentional, errors have occurred, the 
authors of which have sometimes been severely 
punished; but these instances were few, and the 
more important the errors, the more sure they 
were to be speedily detected and corrected.

CONJECTURES OF THE WEATHER. 

1st, 2d showers; 3d, 4th, 5th fair; 6th, 7th, 
8th showers; 9th, 10th variable; nth, 12th, 
13th clear; 14th cloudy; 15th, 16th rain ; 17th,

HUSK MATS. 



A good, respectable-looking husk mat is not 
an unsightly object, and I wish every housekeep- 
er knew what a world of scrubbing and wiping 
of floors they saved, that they might have one. 
One bushel basket and a boiler full of husks is 
sufficient to braid a large mat. If you have 
boys or girls, it will be just fun for them to braid 
one in the evening: but if, like myself, you have 
neither, it would pay you to take the time and 
do it yourself. Have ready a tea-kettle full of 
hot water, and turn on to the boiler of husks. 
Begin a common three-strand braid, and as you 
bring over a strand place about three husks on, 
leaving the large ends of the husks up. When 
enough is braided for a mat, sew firmly with 
twine in any shape you choose — long, round, or 
oval. Then sprinkle warm water on upper side. 
Run a fork through the husks, splitting the ends 
into a mass of little, curly fibers; then with the 
shears trim off evenly. This can all be done in 
one evening by a good worker. I braid enough 
in the fall to last me the year round. 



HOUSEHOLD RECIPES. 



Cream Cake. — Four cups of flour, five eggs, 
one cup of sour cream, one cup of butter, two 
cups of sugar, and one teaspoonful of soda. 

Cookies. — Two cups of sugar, one cup of 
butter, four eggs, two teaspoonfuls of cream of 
tartar, one teaspoonful of soda, flavor with nut- 
meg or lemon, and mix just stiff enough to roll. 

Graham Pudding. — Two cups of graham 
flour, one cup of molasses, one cup of raisins, 
one cup of sweet milk, one teaspoonful of soda, 
and spice to taste. Steam three hours. Eat 
with sauce. It is just as good warmed over by 
steaming a little as when new. 



Doughnuts. — One quart of flour, one cup of 
sugar, one egg, two tablespoon fuls of shorten- 
ing, one heaping teaspoonful of saleratus wet 
with sweet milk, add a little salt and spice to 
your taste. 

Cranberry Pie.— Three cups of raw cran- 
berries, chopped, three cups of sugar, a small 
piece of butter, one tablespoon ful of corn starch 
with just cold water enough to wet it, then pour 
on hot water to make it thick like starch, and 
mix with the berries. This will make three pies. 
Make a nice crust for them. 

Dried Apple Cake. — Soak three cups of dried 
apples over night, chop slightly in the morning, 
then simmer two hours in two cups of molasses, 
add two eggs, one cup of sugar, one cup of 
sweet milk, three-fourths cup of butter, two tea- 
spoonfuls of soda, flour to make a stiff batter, 
and spice to suit the taste. Bake in a moderate 
oven. 

Indian Pudding. — One cup of Indian meal, 
one cup of molasses, one teaspoonful of salt : 
scald thoroughly with one cup of boiling water; 
add a quart of milk, ; pour into the baking dish 
and bake one hour, stirring thoroughly at least 
twice while baking. Let it get about half cold 
before serving. We like just plain sweet cream 
for sauce. 

Soft Graham Bread. — One quart of good, 
rich buttermilk, a little salt, two rounding tea- 
spoonfuls of soda, one-third cup of molasses or 
syrup, put all together in a pan, then stir in 
graham flour with a spoon until it is quite stiff- 
This will make two loaves, in deep tins of as 
good bread as it was ever my good fortune to 
eat at any one's table. 

Rose Cake. — One and one-half cups of su- 
gar, one-half cup of butter, one cup of water, 
the whites of five eggs beaten to a froth, two 
teaspoonfuls of baking powder mixed with 
enough flower to make a soft dough. Put a 
layer of dough in your pan, then sprinkle red 
frosting sugar on, then another layer, and so on. 
and you will have a beautiful cake. 

Grape Pie. — Take a about a quart of whole 
grapes, separate the pulp from the skins, cook 
the pulp until the seeds can be sifted out, then 
return to the dish with the skins, put a little 
water with it, and let it just cook a little, then 
sweeten. Have a crust ready, pour in the grape, 
sprinkle a little flower over the pie, put on the 
upper crust, taking care to fix it so the juice 
won't run out. and bake.

ECONOMY. 



The practice of economy in the house — that 
is, domestic economy, is considered by many 
the fundamental principle of wealth ; the nu- 
cleus of a fortune ! lam not prepared to an- 
swer this question strictly, but will say as far as 
my observation extends, "The saving and dili- 
gent hand maketh rich." 

I call to mind several people who at the out- 
set of married life, were possessed of a very 
comfortable salary, and because they thought it 
would always continue, the wife was not as pru- 
dent as she might have been in the management 
of household affairs, so they failed to pay a cer- 
tain amount yearly for their home, consequently 
lost it. 

There are so many ways in which the mothers 
and daughters can economize, if they will give 
the subject a little thought. The reason why so 
many people are always ' running behind-hand,' 
always in debt; is, not because they do not 
work as hard, or that they live better than their 
neighbors, but because they do not practice good 
economy. 

We are sometimes reminded of Gail Hamil- 
ton, who, in writing upon this subject, says : 

Moved with pity for the poor widow and her 
children, shivering over 9. few embers, you place 
yovu hand in your pocket and leave her a few 
dollars ri< her. You would not have done so 
had you known she would \i^it the photogra- 
pher's the next day and obtain pictures of her- 
self and family." 

I do not believe this true of the majority of

people, by any means. It is, in a great measure 
figuratively speaking , and yet the main feature 
remains the same; that many people grow poor, 
and keep so, because they buy what they do'Tie* 
need, and have no money to purchase that th&}' 
are in actual want of. 

If we become acquainted with nature, we 
shall find economy among her fixed and immu 
table laws. Nothing is lost in her great labora 
tory. Let us learn of her then, if not elsewhere, 
this important lesson, and practice it in our daily 
lives. 



HOUSEHOLD RECIPES. 



Fruit Cake. — One pound of butter, oh 
pound of sugar, one pound of flour, two pounds 
of currants, two pound of raisins, one and one 
quarter pounds of citron, twelve eggs, leaving 
out the whites of six eggs for frosting, three nut 
megs, one teaspoonful of mace, and one tea 
spoonful of cinnamon. Cut the citron in slices. 
and put in a layer of cake, then a layer of citron 
until it is all used. Bake gradually four or five 
hours. 

Soft Molassss Gingerbread. — One cup o 

molasses, one teaspoonful of soda, one table 
Spoonful of ginger, one tablespoonful of buttei 
or lard, and a pinch of salt. Stir this togethe 
and then pour on half a ( up of boiling watei 
and stir in one pint of (lour. Hake about 011c 
inch deep in a sheet. This is very nice if pain 
are taken to have the water boiling, and to bea 
well when the flour is added.
